"The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves." -- John Adams

"No money shall be drawn from the treasury, for the benefit of any religious or theological institution." -- Indiana Constitution Article 1, Section 6.

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilisation, it expects what never was and never will be...nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free and every man able to read, all is safe." – Thomas Jefferson

The Roar of an Educator -- John Kuhn

The inspiring video below is of John Kuhn, superintendent of Perrin-Whitt Consolidated Independent School District speaking at the Save Texas Schools rally. He is speaking to teachers in Texas, but his message is appropriate for all of us who have chosen education as a career. It's only 8 and a half minutes long...you have time for that!

Be sure to read his Alamo Letter and the interview at Anthony Cody's Living in Dialogue Blog.
